How can you build green jobs in Ohio (did I say OHIO?) while you make sure your phone is charged during Hurricane Sandy? Easy. The nPower® PEG is the world's first passive kinetic energy charger for personal handheld electronics. Placed in your backpack, the PEG harvests your kinetic energy as you move, storing it in a battery for when you need it most - when there's no power.
Best part about the PEG in this election year? It's Made in OHIO, right here in Cleveland. Click past the orange hurricane track squiggle to learn more.
A backpacker on the Appalacian Trail said she'd trade a day's food if she had to, just to have the peace of mind the nPower® PEG gives her. CNN called the nPower® PEG "best tech for disasters." Soldiers in Afghanistan get power while marching with the PEG.
The nPower® PEG harvests the kinetic energy of anything that moves. Attach it to your dog.
....if it's WINDY,
....like when a HURRICANE happens,
....all you have to do is hang it from a tree, and it will harvest that energy, too.
Here's the PEG hanging from a train collecting the bounces for your phone.
Here's video of the PEG taped to the inside of a SXSW startup bus harvesting the bumps in the road.
Here's the PEG hanging from a hammock on a windy night charging while you sleep.
MADE IN AMERICA.
Keep your phone charged during the Frankenstorm and build green jobs in OHIO while you're at it. Right before the election, too. Get it online at REI, or if you're in NYC and need it RIGHT NOW, visit the REI store in Soho. We're there too.
